Default HXP ammo question

Is $180 for a spam can of 192 rounds a good deal?

My opinion.....Nope.

Ok, so they aren't making it anymore and I suppose that is a reason for more than $0.95ish per round and perhaps it comes with bandoleers...but...

You can get new manufacture ammo for the M1 for about $0.67/rd. Look at PPU and S&B for example. ammoseek is a good place to start.

I agree $0.80ish/round is about tops for HXP, but...that can has enblocs and bandoliers...so if you need some of those, it’s a decent buy.

Does that include shipping? Add another $20-$30 for that also. I wouldn’t get caught up in the milsurp ammo craze. If you can get it at a good deal that’s great. But like said earlier, the PPU stuff is lead core and reloadable for far less and shoots good
